The Kaduna State University (KASU) halted undergraduates’ academic activities indefinitely on Tuesday.
Mr Samuel Manshop, the Registrar of the Kaduna State University, made the announcement in a statement in Kaduna.
Academic activities for postgraduate programs, college of medicine, pharmaceutical sciences, and part-time programs would continue, according to Manshop, who did not disclose grounds for the suspension, NAN stated.
“KASU administration wishes to inform employees, students, and the general public that undergraduate academic activities have been immediately suspended.
“All postgraduate programs, colleges of medicine, faculties of pharmaceutical sciences, and part-time programs will keep operating as usual.
“Staff should report to work as usual,” he stated, adding that “management will convey subsequent developments.”
According to the news men, undergraduate students opposed the increase in school fees from N24,0000 to N36,000 and also N100,000 to N400,000.
The suspension, nevertheless, is understood to be linked to the institution’s proposal for the firing of 18 employees.
The university had identified 16 academic and two non-academic staff employees in the protest by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), which had halted activity in Kaduna a few weeks ago, according to a memo spotted on social media.
The employees’ names have been given to the Head of Service for appropriate punishment after they were allegedly recognized in numerous protest images distributed on the internet.
